who broke the story, andrea mitchell. >>> beyond the shape of president obama's second term administration and who is in his cabinet, we now know that president obama has scheduled a major meeting for tomorrow in washington with labor leaders. that will be on tuesday and then on wednesday the president is going to be meeting with a lot of ceos and business leaders. the world of big business in some ways large and small chose mitt romney over president obama during this election season. they made their choice early and loudly and publicly and put a ton of money behind mr. romney. it did not work. their guy did not win. president obama got reelected any way. there presumably is some sort of reckoning from that. if not a reckoning, at least a turn of the page. the white house is signaling that the president wants to enlist business leaders in his effort to end bush tax cuts for those earning more than $250,000. an effort they might get something in return for. the white house characterizing their plans as a deal that would help bring down the deficit, but without destroying the
